Be very thankful if the Dead performed a great show on your birthday, and for many of you even a show on the day you were born. Alas the stars and planets aligned just right in 1995 to give me this... http://www.archive.org/details/gd95-06-02.sbd.583.sbeok.shnf

Sigh, has to be one of the worst performances ever. And it was the only performance on June 2 in the the 30 years of playing.

Well, SDS, look at the bright side, you had the chanting monks. And 28 out of 40 objective reviewers gave it a 4 or higher, you had to be there rating!!

I think they played 7 gigs on my B-Day, not actual date of birth though, '74 hiatus, missed the Winterland run by a few contractions or so.

This is easily my favorite,

Although the rumor mill says this is the 1st China>Rider?

Thanks Dead Red,
I am most definitely inclined to believe LIA, which is why I added the disclaimer.

I don't know anyone born on February 24th, but
Let's all listen to a rockin' show!!

The GD played the day I was born, 12/13/1968 at a place called "The Bank", in Torrance, CA. Over the last 25 years, I have never been able to find an inkling of a setlist for this show.

I think I was at that show. Seems like it was in the summer though, around the time of Shrine & OC Pop Festival. As to a setlist...

Yeah, every edition of deadbase that I have seen just lists the venue but never a setlist. They probably played Viola Lee, Death Don't, Alligator, Cream Puff War, New Potato Caboose, Schoolgirl, and Dark Star. There, we have a setlist!!!

The '70 and '73 are both gems (preference to '70). Consider yourself extremely lucky.
